Tree house Netting from Factory to Installation

Over the years Pucuda-Leading has provided climb netting to the Animal Planet’s show Treehouse Masters. The premise behind the show involves the host Pete Nelson’s crew of carpenters and designers constructing a magnificent treehouse and recording the whole design/build process for television. These structures can range from a family escape in the woods, to a hotel retreat or even a brewery.

This past year, Treehouse Masters asked Pucuda to manufacture and install a climbing net wall and a netted platform for a treehouse which they built in Johnston, PA.

For this project, we used three different netting products. The one used for the climbing net wall was made from 1“ polypropylene rope. The manufacturing process starts with the raw rope, which was cut to the appropriate lengths and was then woven into a net using double-tack splicing. The net for the platform, was our standard 5/8” climbing net, with a 20T barrier net to keep people from falling off the platform.

A net platform added to a tree house.

On the weekend when our netting was installed the weather was unpredictable and our install crew had to wait for a break to start their work. It was a team effort, with Pete Nelson and Pucuda-Leading Edge’s Founder John Rexroad, helping to accomplish the install as quickly as possible. If you missed this episode – Semper Fi in the Sky, when it aired on The Animal Planet, you can view it online in their database of treehouse projects:
